Tramore and Down Royal runners

Today we have plenty going on as we send horses to Tramore and up to Down Royal with both set to be evening meetings.

Over in Tramore we start off with two runners in the FormaHoof Maiden Hurdle over two miles. BALLYQUIN BAY and BENZ go forward. Ballyquin Bay has run ok on his first two starts so far but the experience should be of a great benefit here with Jordan Gainford in the saddle. Benz will be having his first start over hurdles here as he converts from the flat. Luke Dempsey has been booked to ride.

For the mares maiden hurdle we have WHAT AN OCEAN. She was has managed to get closer and closer with each run and that would give you hope that she will have her day in the sun very soon, Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.

In the bumper at Tramore we have THE FRIDAY MAN who ran a cracker on debut for the yard. Although he was fourth he wasn’t very far behind the winner that day and he holds good form. Lisa O’Neill has been booked to ride.

For Down Royal we kick off with the mares hurdle where SHESADREAM looks to back up her return win. She takes the step forward with Jack Kennedy in the saddle.

For the maiden hurdle we have BANKS BOY who takes a step back in class and based off his rating he should have a decent chance of getting in the frame if things go right. JAck Kennedy has been booked to ride.

For the opportunity maiden we have ASK PHILIP and RUN FOR PAT. Run for Pat came very close the last day and is in good form. Eoin Walsh has been booked to ride. Ask Philip needs one more run to qualify for handicaps where he might be more comfortable, Kevin Murphy has been booked to ride and claims 4lbs.

For the first handicap hurdle of the card we have KEEPTHEFAITHINME and MINELLA MOMENT. Minella Moment comes here off a long break and will come on for whatever he does today. Cian Chester has been booked to ride and claims 7lbs. Keepthefaithinme may benefit for being in handicaps now and has first time cheekpieces along with with Georgie Benson claiming 7lbs.

For the feature race on the card we have three going forward, BRAVO TEAM, DON DIABLO and CURLEW HILL. Bravo Team was a tired faller the last day so can be forgiven for that. He goes with first time cheekpieces here and will have Jack Kennedy in the saddle. Don Diablo is in good form at home and returns after a long break. He may need this run especially with his mark but Richie Condon is booked to ride and claims 7lbs. Finally Curlew Hill also makes his return to the track after well over a year off. He has talent but may need the run and has Corey McGivern claiming 7lbs.

For the fillies bumper we have two runners in the shape of ICONOGRAPHY and ELLARIA MOON. Iconography is a lovely bred horse from France and we have enlisted Harry Swan to take 7lbs off. Ellaria Moon will be having his first run on the track and connections will be hoping for a good run but she should show plenty of improvement going forward. Carl Millar claims 7lbs.

In the final bumper of the day we have THE LAST MARDI who showed improvement to win on second time of asking. He will be up against other winners here and Harry Swan will be claiming 7lbs off.
